    Dean really isn't worried about Trump getting re-elected, since (in his opinion) Trump will defeat himself.

    Very True.

    Think of this way, Democrats have already have the WH, but if they screw up badly enough, they could give it back to him.

    During the 2020 campaign, Trump will double down, triple down, etc. He either wins his way by lying, without a single comprise, or he goes home.

    Don't be surprised if the Birther issue comes back and HC gets a lot of attacks such as "If you elect a democratic President, HC will be appointed Attorney General"..... He will either win by lying, or go down in flames for lying. And he will make impossible promises like "My plan means ZERO taxes for the next 4 years. Not one penny; and I will send each American $10,000 per month for 4 more years"... and many other lies that will entice people to take another chance despite being burned before.

    All con men prey on the same people over and over. Con men like Trump will buy a person's car for less than half the value, then sell it back for twice the value...

    wwjd, Yes, you've not won until you did win. Indeed the Dem's still don't realize what an "con-man" is. As long as they follow the "antique" Constitution then they will end up the same as in 2016; they still don't realize that Trump and his cronies hate "laws" and will do everything like the mob does, to circumvent any law or rule. Since this "banana republic" thrives on "rules" but not "black' and "white" laws, then as Trump has proven, he even goes around the "Supreme Court" decisions, as is now done with the "census" issue. Thus I'm afraid he will use every "mob" trick in the book to win again in 2020.

    It's early but to be entirely honest there are people raising money for their campaigns who have less than 2% of a chance. 24 currently competing and I agree the top 8 might have a good chance. The bottom 16 are waisting time and money and they're diluting the punch.

    13 through 24 should thank their staffs and volunteers while wrapping up that which was not meant to be. At leasr not yet.

    After another 30 or 60 days numbers 5 through 12 should face reality as well. Debates with the 4 candidates who've remained most relevant would be far better than 20 over 2 nights.

    Americans, like myself, love wasting money on the irrelevant, I donated to Sanders when I could've wasted money on Hillary, as it turned out, she won the primary and was the nominee I eventually supported and voted for. But I gave about $300 to sanders thru act blue. My point is that people are throwing money away. Hopefully, someday, money will not be the deciding factor of who is and who is not a nominee.

    Right now, the economy is sooooo good, (not) that I can't afford to support anyone, because of the economy, my wife is facing another job where she might be unemployed or underemployed due to an underperforming store location.

    The reality is that Trump might win a second term, the only hope I hold onto is that democrats hold the house and win the senate, which would put a bite on trump's sorry ass.

    Dock, In "normal" countries they don't give "money" to candidates. If you look at the hundreds of million dollars raised, it looks more like an real "horse race" on which you can bet. Sorry this is the most ridiculous country in the world.

    Elections should be solely about who's the most "qualified" and the "least corrupt"; certainly not who can raise the most money. Guess what? who raised the most "money" and still acts like a little spoiled "baby" who does not even know that they did not have "airports in 1775? Let alone that you don't have to show your passport if you buy groceries, as well thinks Puerto Rico is in the "middle" of the ocean. This guy got elected because the people here never got any education ( just like him) in the "boonies" and still live in 1800, because of the "island" mentality. Let alone that they elect someone with "brains". They rather stick to an "want to be dictator" as in the movies, rather than an "non-mob" person with normal brains.

    Don't forget Trump wanted the job for what? Just to "enrich" himself as well to help his .......... complex.

    The next debates are scheduled for July 30 and 31 in Detroit, and will follow the same format as the first debates - 10 candidates each night.

    The third debates will be in September. After that, the debates will be once a month until April of 2020.

    The Democratic convention will be held in Milwaukee from July 13-16, 2020.

    The Republican convention will be in Charlotte August 24-27. Charlotte was the only city in the country to submit a formal bid for the convention. The mayor of Charlotte (a Democrat) does NOT plan to give a welcoming speech to the convention.

    Bill Weld is the only challenger so far to Trump.

    They just boasted on TV that Trump now has the highest approval rating ever. Something like 43%. I guess if this is true than indeed this must be the most stupid corrupt country on earth. Looking at what he did lately, which has cost fortunes of the taxpayers money as well his kissing up to dictators should be "negative" instead of "positive". So keep it up and then we will certainly enjoy an real dictatorship for years to come. Congratulations America!

    As I mentioned on June 28, I don't think that "Medicare for all" is a winner for the Democrats - and Joe Biden agrees.

    Today's Washington Post reported that Biden has embraced the Affordable Care Act, which I still think is the best compromise. The Republican Party's continuance assault of the plan SHOULD cost them dearly in 2020.

    The next debates start on July 30.

    Dutch:

    According to Gallup, Trump's highest approval rating was 46%, which he achieved in April. He bottomed out at 35% on 4 separate occasions. He is now at a 41% approval rating.

    Compared to virtually all of his predecessors, he sucks. The only exception was Jimmy Carter, who had a 29% approval rating in June of 1979.

    If you can believe in polls, which were dreadfully wrong leading up to the 2016 election.

    Dock:

    The polls actually were exactly right, since they predicted that Hillary would win by roughly 2.5 %, which she did IN THE POPULAR VOTE.

    The wild card, unfortunately, turned out to be the electoral college, where a roughly a total of 100,000 votes (out of a total of roughly 127 million) in 3 key states swung the outcome in the wrong direction.

    Tomorrow and Friday, the DNCC will determine who the 20 participants will be at the end of the month. According to CNN this morning, Kamala Harris is now tied with Joe Biden in the lead, but that could change after the next debate.

    Which is why we shouldn't believe any polls.

    Yes, neither believe that anything is "honest" in this country. Trump will just "buy" the "electoral college" again.

    I just about can guarantee that the "winner" will not have been "vetted" properly again, because this country has never learned from their mistakes in 300 years. Slowly but surely they did give Presidents more power over time and can't reverse it; this will certainly lead to an "dictatorship". Sorry people this country is "broken" like Humpty Dumpty etc.

    Arizona -- Yes Harris has taken a 2 point lead over Biden in the California Quinnipiac poll, but nationwide Biden still leads.
